Description of key information

The lethal concentration (LC50) of sodium 2-(2-dodecyloxyethoxy) ethyl sulphate in soil macroorganism [Eisenia fetida (worms)] in a long term toxicity study of 14 days on the basis of mortality effect was estimated to be 2600 mg/kg soil dw.Considering that the chemical is readily biodegradable in soil,it is expected that the chemical sodium 2-(2-dodecyloxyethoxy) ethyl sulphate shall not exhibit toxicity to soil macroorganism.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
2 600 mg/kg soil dw
